Cost-effective GPS based asset tracking
Manufacturing and logistics companies are ever so in search of cost-effective GPS based asset tracking solutions to monitor and manage heavy shipments. Ripples IoT offers ready to deploy asset tracking & monitoring solutions for logistics and supply chain management companies. These solutions ensure enhanced supply chain visibility; tamper proofing consignments, maintaining optimal environmental conditions and many more added benefits.
More clarity in supply chain visibility can lead to improved coordination and communication between departments. Most often logistics companies are put at high risk while transporting high precise and costly machineries, there is the ever so impending chance of theft and also damage. These machineries need to be continuously monitored and parameters such as tilt, vibration, shock etc. should be closely watched constantly to prevent damage.
How Particle Based Asset Tracker can monitor your supply chain network effectively
One of our clients needed to implement remote monitoring platform to monitor the exact location and condition of the pre-fabricated materials inbound to their construction sites from manufacturing units. We had used Particle tracker for the GPS based asset tracking of their consignment. Particle asset tracker is an end-to-end solution which includes a GPS shield and the data would be passed on to particle cloud through Particle 3G Electron.
The whole set up consists of particle SIM card, hardware and of course the particle cloud platform. This asset tracking solution also comes up with accelerometers, moisture, temperature sensors etc. for condition monitoring of transit materials. The biggest advantage of Particle based asset tracker is that it comes with a pre-certified hardware and we can develop an efficient solution easily with minimal data cost. Moreover it can integrate easily with the existing supply chain environment and can even help in providing predictive analytics and business insights. At Ripples, we have developed supply chain management solutions using Particle IO, you can read more about it here.
The particle team has also recently announced particle mesh, a low cost networking technology. Through particle mesh, we can create wireless networks of sensor devices and push its data to the cloud easily. It is specifically designed to handle large data requests and is supposed to use low cost hardware and consume less power than its counterparts. Particle is also a perfect solution to handle cold-chain visibility and management. So if you are looking for a low-cost, low maintenance fleet tracking and control systems, please connect with us.
